Hurricane Ian is making landfall in Florida today and the near category five storm is likely going to leave a massive trail of damage in Southwest Florida. But Fox News propagandist Tucker Carlson is totally fine downplaying it. He said on his program yesterday, “you hate to hype hurricanes because it's just a staple of TV and everyone's kind of onto the scam, but there is a legitimately large hurricane barreling toward the Gulf Coast of Florida tonight, a hurricane bigger than we've seen in more than a hundred years.” It is genuinely scary that Fox News’s business model is for hosts to tell their viewers they are being lied to by everyone else in the media so they need to turn to Fox for the truth. Even when it comes to things that could be real dangers to people, like viruses and natural disasters, Fox is perfectly fine putting people’s lives at risk if they know it will get more people watching them.
